The unincorporated area of Jamul/Dulzura is one of the largest in the East County, encompassing approximately 168 square miles of gently sloping hills, narrow canyons, creeks, springs, and rolling meadows.
In 2018 the median sales price of Jamul single family homes was $625,000 (the low sales price was $215,000, and the high sales price was $2,500,000). And in Jamul there are no condos, so no median, low or high sales prices are available.
Known as "horse country," this distinctly rural region of grasslands and scrub brush is cherished for its natural beauty, and anchors what Sunset magazine referred to as the "70 perfect miles" of Highway 94.
Sparsely populated, rustic, and charming, Jamul stretches south of El Cajon to the border with Mexico, west to Otay Lakes, and east to the Cleveland National Forest.
The area that took its name from the old Spanish land grant comprises over 107,000 acres of pastures and foothills, and supports a population of just over 5,000 people. Residents of this region appreciate the beauty and ruggedness of the open space, the rich history, the privacy, and the lifestyle. Many families in this area have lived here for generations.
A "bedroom community" located approximately 30 minutes from downtown San Diego, Jamul commutes are easy and jobs are plentiful. Jamul real estate is built among the land’s hills, rocks, and valleys with spacious lands and varied designs. Many Jamul homes are custom built and have designer upgrades. The school district is small but focused, ranking between the 60th to the 90th percentile in the state. Cuyamaca College is in nearby Rancho San Diego, offering courses and activities for the general public to enjoy at low costs.
